Do I bank miles or not
For work I have quite a few flights coming up. Not much of a traveler before, but have mostly flown Alaska Air and I am part of their mileage program.
I have a few flights to Dublin, then to Israel, Vegas, San Antonio and California. Some of the flights however use British Airways and Aer Lingus. The flight numbers don’t give miles to Alaska Air.
Same problem for Delta and American Airlines.
So do I open FFP for Delta, AA and British Airways? Is it worth it? Can I move the miles out or even take advantage of them since Alaska is my biggest account?
Looking for advice as it looks like my travels are going to be more frequent.
Check the fare classes against wheretocredit.com.
The good thing about DL miles is that they never expire. The AA/BA/EI flights I might credit to BA and use the miles on short haul flights. I’d double check with crediting the AA/BA flights to AS though. Domestic flights on AA earn nothing with AS but international flights will.
